Eileen Tabios has quietly announced on WinePoetics that a book of her stories is to be published! She says they are sexy. That's all to the good, because she's a good writer and this will add a bit of spice to the mix.
The thing is, she sandwiched this terrific news between flattering hints about me, and flattering hints about her parents.
Hey, Eileen. Forget me and your parents (easy solution: don't give them your book.) Actually, don't give anybody your book (unless they are writers who are willing to swap). Make 'em buy their copies. Readers are nicer to you when you do that. If your parents buy your book on the sly, they won't have to tell you about all the fun they had reading it!
Now: tell us more about your book!
